Why psychology is sometimes magic, but a magic does not replace psychology?
Show of magic tricks performed by the duo "Alert & Ego" combined with a lecture on the psychology of sensory and cognitive illusions
Dear Sir or Madam,
We invite you all adult persons to the show: "Why psychology is sometimes magic, but a magic does not replace psychology?", during which we hope to enchant you with psychological phenomena that accompany us every day.
During the show we will show through the illusion, what the "NeuroMagic" is.. We will bring the most common myths about psychology, among others:
- Does psychologist can read in minds?
- Does phenomena of telekinesis exsist?
- Can we conclude about the personality basing on the zodiac sign and the height?
We hope to ooze a magical aura around the science. We want to arouse the curiosity and cognitive pursuit of scientific truth and to develop a passion for discovery.
